  • OWA Exch 2007 not working at all.

    I have already searched for the same posting and I did find a few suggestions, but nothing seems to work.

    I can't do a simple search in OWA, exch 2007. But I can search my public folders in OWA.

    Here is the error that I get while trying to search:

    A problem occurred while trying to use your mailbox. Please contact technical support for your organizaion.

    Typical MS error message and no help whatsoever.

    I've tried the below suggestion but it didn't resolve my problem:


    If the issue persists, please refer to the following suggestions and test the issue again:
    Remove/Reinstall Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here are the steps to Properly remove and re-install the Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine For Exchange.
    1. Stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services
    2. Click Start, and then click Run.
    3. In the Open text box, type Installer , and then click OK.
    4. Right-click the Name column header, and then click More..
    5. Select Subject and Click OK
    6. Search through the Subject field until you find "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x". The x's denote what version is installed on the server.
    7. Right-click the cached Windows Installer file that has the "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x" subject, and then click Uninstall.
    8. After the uninstall process has completed, quit the Installer.
    9. Run msiexec /i msfte.msi TARGETDIR="c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server" .The TargetDir can change, but this is the default one, change it to whatever you are using. MSFTE.msi will add the "\Bin" to the path. After this completes make sure Microsoft.Exchange.Search.ExSearch.exe and msfte.dll are in the same folder. MSFTE.MSI can be found on the Exchange 2007 Setup CD (file:///\\\\Setup\\ServerRoles\\Mailbox) directory
    10. Start Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services.

    then ran cmdlet: resetsearchindex -force -all

                ok I finally solved this issue.

                I uninstalled Exch SP2, then re-installed exch SP2, with rollup 2. After I rebooted I was able to search in OWA.
